Before the parade began, these folks posed for a picture. I spot County Board candidates Kay Bates and Craig Wilcox, County Board members Sue Draffkorn and Chuck Wheeler, State Rep. candidate Steve Reick, McHenry Grade School Board member Erik Sivertsen. Directly behind Erik Sivertsen’s right shoulder is John O’Neill – son of the former State Rep candidate. Next to him in sunglasses is his sister, Kitty. In the back of the pick-up truck is young Teddy O’Neill sporting a green Patrick Keneally shirt. Joyce Story is between Sue Draffkorn and Kay Bates.
